Would you head into the football game with only a tennis racket? Or step up to homeplate with a hockey stick? Of course not, having the right equipment is essential to performing well in your job. We all know you need to equip your team with the knowledge and skills they need to close business, but a successful sales enablement strategy also means equipping your team with the tools to sell more effectively. By minimizing the time your sales team spends looking up information, navigating through various sales tools, and trying to find answers the day to day questions that come in from customers and prospects, you are enabling them to do what they do best: SELL!

According to a recent Brandon Hall survey, 88 percent of buyers and executives expressed the importance of sales professionals needing to have competencies for business knowledge and customer insight? However, in a recent survey only 35 percent of sales professionals had the ability to identify business metrics most important to their buyers and only 27 percent were able to show a deep understanding of their buyers’ business initiatives. Not surprisingly, only 50% of these same sales professionals reported these competencies being addressed in their learning.
